Obligatory Opera House Photo

The top picture needs no introduction, the Opera House is one of the most photographed images in the world. This shot was taken while getting a water taxi home on Saturday. Although they say you should not take a photograph in to the sun, I did and was quite pleased with the outcome.
The second shot however is pretty cool. Every night at dawn, we see, literally, tens of thousands of bats flying out of the Botanical Gardens which are opposite our house. My parents are over from France for a month so, jet lagged, I took them for a quick tour on their first day here! All of the hanging things in the tree are fruit bats! The gardens were actually lovely and I will follow this with a few more shots from that area.
Anyway, this is a super short one, all is good here, Mum and Adrien arrived safely and have now gone out in a camper van to tour for eleven days.
More updates soon
Keep Safe.
